Autos - Steve first interest--perhaps an obsession--was
with cars. Most any car would do until his family took delivery
of a new Mercedes-Benz at the factory in Stuttgart in 1961.
Steve's first cars were considerably more pedestrian--a 1959 Renault
Dauphine followed by a 1960 Renault Caravelle. Here are some
links to some pages we find interesting
The cars we've owned
Mercedes-Benz pages--particularly interesting to MB aficionado's for
some of the service info found there.

Dogs - most folks would call us empty nesters, but we call
our dogs our kids now, so the nest isn't completely empty. These
kids don't spend as much money as the 2-legged ones, but they aren't
far behind! A whole page dedicated to our dogs
